Motivation Tips For Small Business Owners #motivationtips for #success

How do you do it? How do you stay motivated? Alright, this is Sharon from got to business builder. It’s not always easy. I’m not going to lie to you. Staying motivated is not always easy, but this is a few things that I do and hopefully they’ll help you. I try to write list out if I know what I’m doing like. Certainly like I got ta do one two: three, a B and C one, two, three whatever it is.

The bottom line is that helps me and it can help me stay focused, so you’re less likely to get unmotivated. Okay, sometimes I feel like people they get stuck. They don’t know what to do it’s hard to get motivated. If there’s you know, they’re, not they’re, not sure where they’re going the other thing is don’t do too much at one time. Perhaps that’s the problem right. You have too much on your plate, narrow it down, start saying.

No, you have to say no to people. That’s another reason why you could get unmotivated because you have too many things going on at one time, it’s difficult who wants to work like that, so start saying: no! Do smaller tasks! Okay, if you find like you just can’t, do the larger test. That’s! Okay! It’s fine it’ll get there just do smaller tasks, get a couple things done, but at least make some progress every day.

That’s so very important inspiration. There are a lot of ways to get inspiration out there. You can listen to podcasts. I mean that, rather than reading TV, maybe getting dressed in the morning riding to work whatever you’re doing in your life, listen to a podcast, it’s really good! Before going to bed at night, where it is sometimes you’re in the day a lunch break whatever it is. You read a book for 15 minutes or half an hour whatever it is.

I know it’s hard to get these things in in your life, but believe me, when you hear the things you get idea is that creativity is going. I think a lot of you know losing motivation is when you have just too much, and you just want to say no. I can’t do this, so be careful, don’t fall into that also surround yourself with people that are motivated and going now. There is a flip side to that I’ll get to that, but the bottom line is when you see people motive, you know going they’re motivated, they’re going and, and you kind of just follow them along it’s important.

So if you don’t have anybody in your life, I always suggest masterminds. Masterminds is a great way to to stay motivated and the reason for that is because you’re tricking with people they’re looking to see your progress and you kind of feel like accountable. That’s really important in business so find that believe me, you can just to somebody on the phone every couple of weeks. However, it is, I do a mastermind.

We meet usually every two weeks and in the summer time we’re down to once a month and honestly we didn’t even meet. We just did the phone last time a three-way phone call. It was a great thing. The bottom line is, you have to be accountable. That’s going to help you with motivation all right now, when you’re in these groups, you’ll, maybe see other people go a lot further than you. Listen! That’s! Okay! For now, just do a little everyday! You will get there.

Don’t worry about anybody else! Kind of put those blinders on and you just have to do what you want to do with your business you’ll, get there maybe not right away, but that’s okay, you’ll get there in your time, but as far as just keep it motivated just keep doing it. That’s the bottom line. You’re you don’t keep doing what you think is important and you’ll stay motivated, make sure you’re getting enough sleep.

Sleep is so very, very important if you’re not sleeping enough you’re not going to get as much done, you’re likely to be unmotivated. It’s just you don’t feel like doing it absolutely understandable and definitely diet and exercise that all comes into it. You know I have a similar article with productivity tips. It really is the same as you know you being productive as the same as you being motivated, read books.

Listen to you know that whole mindset is so very important, because why do people get unmotivated? They get unmotivated when they have too much on their plate and they get unmotivated. When they’re not seeing progress, you may not see progress for a little while this means a lot to you, then you have to hang in there. So how do you hang in there? You surround yourself with people that can help. You find a mentor, find somebody to bounce some ideas off of and that’s why that mastermind comes in, because honestly, it does help and they’re around you never say to me.

I can’t find anybody you can find somebody there’s people on line and, like I said, just, do a phone call. All of these things are going to help you, so these are just my tips today for staying motivated. I hope that this is somewhat helpful for you. It definitely has helped me, I see you know. I started a Facebook group a while back we’re just closing in on 5,000. So I’m happy about that, but it took work.

It didn’t happen overnight took a lot of me posting with really crickets. Nobody was answering just keep at it and I see the same in my own biz there’s definitely days that are bad days. There’s just no doubt about it and I wonder, do I still want to do this, but I’m motivated, I see people around me going forward. I know that I’ve had success and I’ll just keep on going, keep going, that’s the bottom line, and so I hope that you get there too.

You will could. Perhaps this is a bad day for you or bad week, or you know a bad few weeks. You’ll get over the hump. Life is just moments in time really, and these moments will pass so keep at it you’re doing great and I’m looking forward to seeing your progress.

I’Ve started literally started on Instagram like when, I think of a name. I immediately go and see if it’s available on Instagram, I don’t only person who does says who comment below if, when you start a business, you always go to Instagram. First, so I guess that’s like my first tip, if you are starting a business, that’s in 2019. The first thing you need to do is think of a name, and let me give you a tip on top of that tip when you think of a name for your business, please get ii of pain.

I know some of you are not getting second opinions and honestly it will save you a ton of money. If you just got second opinions from other people like family and friends, they will tell you before you go, buy a domain name before you go register your business they’ll. Tell you if it’s crappy or not, I think your the name of your business should be. Two names tops. You do not need 3, 4 or 5. I seen a business today and their name was.

I don’t want to say it because I’m going to be mean, but it was a whole sentence and I’m like girl. My second tip once you think of a name, make sure it’s available in all platform, meaning your Instagram name to your domain name to your Facebook. To your youtube, if that name is not available on all platforms or if you can’t I’ll make it look almost similar on all platforms, do not use that name.

My next tip is your logo. If you’re starting a business in 2019, you have to bring it like. Do not have fast your logo. That’S like one of my pet peeves. I hate. I hate an ugly logo. Okay, invest in your logo, logo. I’Ve ever done for my businesses have been done by me. Some of y’all do way too much with the fonts and in the designs and the lines going off through the logo and the pictures, and it’s like low-quality, and I just I can’t I can’t do it so yeah make sure you have a very good logo.

Let me back it up when I say start a business on Instagram I mean an online business, so of course your business isn’t going to only be on Instagram. You know you should have a Facebook page, you maybe even a YouTube for it. Obviously a website when I, when I say I’m, started business on Instagram, I mean Instagram being your main platform.

Please do not forget, however, to market your business in other ways other than Instagram. I get so many people that think that Instagram is the beginning in the end of their business and they think, oh, I just have to post on here every day and people will buy my product. No, there are so many ways to market an online business and if you think just posting on Instagram is like going to somehow make you a millionaire, that’s not common and it takes hard work and you have to even know like really what you’re doing when you Start a business on on Instagram, so keep that in mind who’s that my third fourth, fourth tip for starting a business on Instagram.

You want to start posting really great content. Really they invest in a camera, invest in getting a photographer, even take your own photos or get a photographer and make sure that your photos have good lighting.

Its high quality make sure you go on YouTube and learn how to edit photos. That’S really going to be a game-changer in 2019, because people are, we are Millennials and we’re getting older, and then we have generation. I think it’s Y or Z, whoever is after us that generation are very, very visual, just like Millennials like bring it or go home, so keep creating great content. Article is going to be a very big thing in 20.

If it’s influencer mark, I don’t think influencer marketing is going anywhere. In fact, I think it’s one of the biggest ways to grow your business if you are not reaching out to influencers, if you are not getting your products on or in the hands of like the top influencers, then what is you doing?
